Tips and Hints

  • You could switch up the vegetables to fit your taste. Cauliflower, different kinds of squash, etc. would all be good in this dish.
  • My kids like to sprinkle a few chow mein noodles on top to add a little crunch.
  • You could also make this dish with brown rice if you are not a fan of quinoa.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED by all I made this using the Asian Blend frozen vegetables and frozen pre-cooked Quinoa. It was quick, easy and sooooo very tasty!
